Jitsuin talks about Things rather than to them so Jitsuin Shared Device Lifecycle Assurance supports modern Things with hardware-backed software and digital identity protection technology alongside legacy devices. With all stakeholders sharing and agreeing to the same view of the state of maintenance of all their Things, a digital “Hawthorne Effect” improves performance, facilitates greater automation, and enables ambient accountability.
Internet Thing Makers
- Jitsuin enables Thing Makers to take part in the data economy and establish recurring revenue to support maintenance throughout a connected product lifecycle.
- Jitsuin provides a broader view of device usage and deployment that will reduce time to fixing vulnerable devices and improve future product development.
- Jitsuin improves tracking of vulnerabilities, disclosure mechanisms, end user notification and life-cycle management including end-of-life consideration.
- Jitsuin is IoT platform agnostic and enables identities created in manufacture to be published once and enrolled anywhere.
Industrial IoT Users
- New business priorities of digital transformation with open APIs create new opportunities for added value to the top line – data is the new oil.
- Jitsuin enables users to prove to third parties that data generated by Internet Things and accessed through APIs is real, thus making that data more valuable.
- Jitsuin eases tracking of the state of Things from any vendor, while keeping an instantly auditable account which enables more responsive risk management.
- Jitsuin enables devices to live a longer serviceable life whilst still complying with trust and maintenance standards.
Shared Device Lifecycle Assurance enables higher levels of trust in data from Things. Higher trust means more value in data to fund the maintenance of Things. Sustainably funded maintenance keeps Things producing truthful data. A virtuous circle completes to keep Things in service longer and reduce electronics waste. Other benefits of Shared Device Lifecycle Assurance include:
- Significant opportunities for automation and cost savings
- Improved visibility and communication of firmware vulnerabilities and updates
- Enhanced operational intelligence
- Traceability during maintenance and recovery operations
- Near-real-time audit view of device patch and update status
- Checking data provenance within a system before acting upon it
- Proving that systems are operating to accepted maintenance agreements
- Encoding maintenance responsibility, performance, and SLAs among stakeholders
- Proving to third parties that data was created by real Things running real firmware
- Ensuring downtime during upgrades is managed safely by system operators
- Coordinated end-of-life management
- Recording transfer of liability when exercising rights to repair and modify
